Although I agree that if you don't trust your HC to have input on personnel and Coordinators, it's time to let him go. Might work out better for you and him.
Offense: We suck because our O-line sucks. Starting Adams at LT ... say no more, right?
Defense: We suck because our NT sucks, and our splash players aren't splashing.
You could have Chuck Noll as HC, and Lombardi/Landry as coordinators, and this team would still suck. I thought after last week maybe we were getting better, but this last game proved that wrong.
It's really pretty simple - we suck because we suck. Meaning our players suck.
Once you have good players, check that, players that don't suck, then we can fairly evaluate the coaches.
Blaming the coaches is like blaming the Detroit firefighters for sucking as firefighters when they had no water pressure for their hoses. Can't do it.
Does ANYONE here think ANY other coaches in the NFL would have us on a playoff path this year (remember ... Adams at LT, and Gilbert/Whimper on the field too - HAHAHAHAHA!)?

PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS
My point is, they made their own bed. It isn't like they aren't the ones selecting these bums.
And having said that, believe me, I agree with you--it's all about the players. If we were able to draft a Joe Greene-type wrecker onto our front 7, we'd suddenly start to look real good. We replace our LT with Joe Thomas, and watch our offense shine.
It's not all about the players. Yes, there are some players who ought to be replaced. But the coaching staff plainly isn't doing what they ought to do to prepare or help the players.
For instance, the defense obviously didn't begin the game ready to defend Oakland's read-option attack. Now they made adjustments, and shut it down in the second half...but why didn't they BEGIN the game playing that way? Exactly what were LeBeau and Tomlin working on the week before the game?
And I don't even want to start on Haley's red-zone play-calling and our clock management issues...
One of the issues is that it's very difficult to replace the # of high quality players the Steelers lost. There is not a GM or coach on the planet that could had replaced those high quality personnel losses in a short time period.
